Sometimes after a long period of stress or sadness I get this ache. It's an odd sort of ache. Kind of like that pain you get then you haven't moved a muscle for a while and it starts to stiffen up. That is kind of what it feels like. I figured out what it was the other day. My happy is aching.
I know that sounds ridiculous and weird, but that is the best way I can think of to describe it. It's like my happy emotion is always there but kind of gets pushed to the back and the stress/pain gets all the stimulation. Then after a while it gets antsy/jealous. It wants stimulation too. Then my emotions have a nice little battle. Stress gets a little more stressy because it stresses me out that I feel like I need to feel happy which in turn makes me feel less happy. It's a sick little cycle.
I've tired to do a few things to kick start it but so far nothing has panned out. It seems like a fluke when it finally happens which is super frustrating! It's like I have to trick myself into it because if I see it coming I inevitably get stressed!
